    Greetings to all, I'm new to stacking having truly not heard the term (or is that read?) before stumbling across the forums whilst deciding/researching what to do with some old coins that I have had lying around. Having lurked around the forums a bit, gleaning here and there and laughing along the way slowly realizing that stacking was the way to go!

    So cheers to you all! and I hope you will welcome another eager stacker to the fold!:D

    Welcome absinthe,

    So what type of coins do you have?

    Silver, gold, numismatic older copper or CuNi issues.

    Maybe a pic?

    :)

    THUCYDIDES79 - well, I have a fair stack of 66 rounds, florins and other silver coins, plenty of old pennys halfpennys and the like that I still haven't found that rainy day to go through (or really the motivation, is there REALLY going to be something valuable in there like a 1930 penny - I don't think so), some proof sets and god help me even some franklin mint stuff. Hence I've come to the conclusion of clearing out the crap and doing something worthwhile with the proceeds (ie stacking).

    Aurora et luna - Thankyou! :)
